The Rutland County Humane Society (RCHS) is partnering with Vermont Companion Animal Neutering (VT-CAN) to get Rutland County cats spayed and neutered. VT-CAN, a low cost spay\Neuter clinic located in Middlesex, is a long drive from Rutland County. To help out, RCHS and VT-CAN are working together to make it easier for cat owners.
By dropping your cat at RCHS, volunteers will transport your cat to VT-CAN where he or she will be spayed or neutered and given a rabies shot, and returned to RCHS later that day. There are three dates to choose from: April 7, May 5 and June 2. Prior registration is required and VT-CAN fees for services apply. To register, call RCHS at 483-6700. For more information, visit www.rchsvt.org or for more information about VT-CAN visit www.vt-can.org.
A 3 year old, spayed female hound mix weighing 45 lbs.
I am a beautiful girl-a bit of a wallflower-but please don't be taken in by just my looks unless you have the time and energy for the next year or so to really commit to me.
I was adopted from RCHS on February 20 and then returned by my adoptive family after a hectic week that ended with me at the vet office with a cut foot. I was scared and I snapped at a stranger who tried to look at my foot after I got the stitches. My owner got scared of me and returned me. Before that, I was a stray from Wallingford.
I am a young dog in need of a second chance with someone who understands dogs and can help a nervous dog to become more confident and less likely to growl or snap under stress. In the brief time I was adopted, I showed a clear preference for women and also showed that I need time and lots of slow, positive encouragement to re-condition me.
I need an adult only home and should be able to live with other animals with proper supervision. A fenced in yard will help me burn off a lot of energy and make it easier for you to leash train me-right now I walk on an Easy Walker harness and it is necessary to control me.
The Rutland County Humane Society is located at 765 Stevens Road in Pittsford. The shelter phone number is 483-6700. The shelter is open Wednesday through Saturday from 1 p.m. until 5 p.m. and is closed Sunday through Tuesday.
